• How to use a Survival Kit:

    1. Gather the Items listed in the kit
    2. Print out a cute listing of the contents so that the recipient knows what each item is for.
    3. Place the items in a baggie
    4. Print out the topper, fold it over the top of the baggie containing the survival kit contents and staple it shut

     Please note that Most of the survival kits listed have free printable toppers available to print here.

  • Diabetic Survival Kit

    Insulated kit for travel with diabetic supplies (has elastic to hold syringes, pocket for wipes, place for insulin bottles, and a small ice pack you store in freezer when not in use, as well as heavy insulation-- found it at Price Less Drug Store and other places

    Really nice high quality socks to protect feet of a diabetic, look for no seams even in toes area to chafe feet of diabetic

    nice creams for rubbing on feet with verse about caring for feet.

    mirror for inspecting parts of feet that are harder to see as we get older and less flexible

    nice box of Whitmans Sampler sugar free chocolate creams, yummy even to me a person who usually dislikes the flavor aftertaste of sugar substitute

    Sugar free things: breath mints, herbal tea, sugar free cookbook or recipe cards

    Subscription to a good magazine like Diabetic Self Care

    Exercise is usually recommended, along with weight loss where necessary, so perhaps a pair of jogging shoes, a pedometer, or a gift certificate for a consult with a sports coach or nutritionist to encourage new habits

      I wish someone would have given me one of these when I found out I have LADA. (Type 1 that appears in the 20's)
